After years of Disney on Ice productions that pretty much placed Pixars most recent hit movie from Toy Story to Finding Nemo on skates, the latest show glides away from formula. Disney Presents Pixars The Incredibles in a Magic Kingdom Adventure takes Mr. Incredible and his brood from 2004s animation smash on a vacation to Disneys theme park. How convenient. The characters are so identifiable that they could be recreated in a new story, says director Patricia Vincent. Its a new adventure for them.
Still, fans of the movies other characters like costume-wearing, crime-fighting pal Frozone are in luck, since many make appearances during the superhero familys day out. And Disney mainstays Mickey, Donald, and Goofy lend a paw or four. Its really important to make the characters as believable as possible, says Vincent. We use a lot of body language.
Given her choice of superpowers, Vincent a Los Angeles resident who began skating in Disney productions more than 20 years ago says she would like to be able to move coast-to-coast with just a snap of the finger. Though I can relate to Helen being stretched in many directions, she says, referring to Elastigirl.
